Whether it's interning in London, studying in Spain or doing research in Germany, most Hobart and William Smith students will have had some kind of international learning experience before they graduate.

With some planning, chemistry majors can travel abroad and still graduate on time.  While the Center for Global Educations offers abroad programs on six continents, many chemistry students find themselves studying abroad in Bath, England; Copenhagen, Denmark or Australia and New Zealand.  We have also had faculty sponsor programs in Ecuador and Peru.

Bath, England

This program is based in the beautiful 18th century city of Bath, where students are integrated into British culture through living in the city, having membership in the University of Bath Student Union, and through volunteer and internship opportunities. This program incorporates a week-long residency at University College, Oxford University, and an extended excursion to Stratford-upon-Avon.

Copenhagen, Denmark

As part of the Denmark program, students will study in Copenhagen through the country's International Study Program. Students select from more than 70 courses, all taught in English, of particular interest to student studying biology or pre-health.

Australia and New Zealand

As part of the Australia program, students live and work at the University of Queensland, located in an area of incredible ecological and geographic diversity. The program is perfect for students studying the natural sciences, integrating field and lecture components. Extended excursions, designed to highlight a variety of ecosystems, are a large part of the program.



At HWS, students have the freedom to study at any of our Global Education destinations.

The featured abroad programs are recommended by the chemistry department based on content of the curricula.
